In a shocking turn of events, on Monday, cow vigilantes allegedly struck again in Alwar district near Haryana border.
The police had found two injured persons in a mini truck that had rammed into a house in Govindgarh area of the district. On searching, the police found two calves and three cows in the mini truck.
The two injured were immediately rushed to Alwar’s district hospital. The two calves died in the accident and their post-mortem has been conducted.
The injured people’s families complained that the two had been beaten up by a mob. The accident occurred while they were trying to escape the mob.
However, the police ignored their complaint and instead registered an FIR against the two injured for cow smuggling under Rajasthan Bovine Act.
The relatives showed receipts to the police issued by the Jaipur Municipal Corporation. On the receipt, it is written that the estimated cost of three cows and two calves are Rs 90,000.
The JMC also collected Rs 600 as tax from the duo. The receipt was issued in the name of one Altaf, resident of Pahari of Bharatpur, who was one of the injured in the mini-truck.
For the unreversed, despite Ashok Gehlot-led state government enacting a law to prevent mob lynching, such incidents are reported quite frequently.
